Look forward to gardening, planting

March 3, 2013
By PATTY CHRISTOPHER ( , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Wow! March already! I hate to see it come so fast, but the good thing is that spring is almost here. I hate this "mud season," but there isn't anything I can do about it, so it is just grin and bear it. When the grass starts getting green again and the flowers start popping up, I won't mind the rain. Something in the crockpot or baking in the oven will make the house all warm and cozy, plus send out great aromas, so the rain can't get me down. Anyway, we do have to have rain - parts of the country are begging for it so the crops will be better. Our valley has been pretty lucky, weather wise, this past year. Basketball is giving way to softball at the schools. Granddaughter Baylee says she is playing softball, then volleyball, then basketball will be back. Full year of playing ball. Of course, she wants to go on some vacations, too! I really don't think she is planning enough time for all of that. School sports are really good for students, and it is too bad some districts are making it hard for the students to take part in them. Granddaughter Cassidy is still into wrestling, but that is pretty much over for the year now. I can't seem to get them interested in things like cooking and cleaning the house. It just isn't as interesting as sports. Now, maybe if I imported some neat guys to hang around here ...
